    My 5yo loves Stitch, and Tomatoa... not you're main stream characters for sure. Is there anything Moana or Lilo and Stitch attractions we should look out for?

    Hi Donata,

    Welcome to planDisney and thank you for your question!

    First off, I love that your five year-old has their own distinct characters that they love; my brother grew up loving Stitch as well, so I’m all for it!

    When it comes to rides and attractions, at this time, there aren’t any that come to mind immediately, but there are a few experiences your family could do. 

    If you’re planning to visit World of Disney at Disney Springs, Stitch has landed on top of one of the entrances of the store! If you venture to the entrance by Ghiradelli Ice Cream & Chocolate Shop, your family will see him on top. Be careful when you take your photo though, you’ll notice quickly that Stitch might have a wet surprise for you. While at World of Disney, you can also shop around for any merchandise or souvenirs from the amazing selection!

    My next suggestion would be to head over to Disney’s Polynesian Village Resort and do a walk-up reservation for ‘Ohana. This themed restaurant has an American breakfast influenced by Polynesian flavors and yes there are Stitch waffles! There are also Moana, Lilo, and Stitch themed smoothies as well. I’ve recently been able to score multiple dining reservations for this restaurant by using the walk-up reservation system through the My Disney Experience mobile app. It’s become one of my favorites! To do the walk-up reservation, you’ll want to be physically at the Resort, then you just select the “Join Walk-Up List” within the app on the ’Ohana page. These reservations are subject to availability, but if you get there early (right before or as soon as breakfast starts), you have a great chance! While waiting, you and your family can shop in Moana Mercantile and grab a lei from a Cast Member in the lobby!

    My final suggestion would be to keep an eye out for any character sightings while you’re in the Theme Parks. Of course, you can view the Character Experiences, but sometimes characters pop up all over the Resort. You never know who you might see!

    I hope this “Bit By Bryanna” is helpful as you make the final preparations for your vacation in just a few days. If you have any other last minute vacation or planning questions, please feel free to reach out, I’m always happy to help!
